Victory Motorcycles invite you to an audience with Motörhead guitarist Phil Campbell at Motorcycle Live, NEC, Birmingham, Midday, November 22nd.
Join Victory Motorcycles at Motorcycle Live on Saturday 22nd November for the unveiling and handover of a unique hand-built custom machine at 12PM. Commissioned for Motörhead guitar legend Phil Campbell, who’s responsible for delivering some of the dirtiest, sexiest, most fist-pumping riffs and licks in the history of rock.
Victory Motorcycles and Rewaco have collaborated with Motörhead’s European sponsor broker Jonas Sveberg, who has managed every step of the build to create Phil’s unique dream ride. A truly one-off machine which delivers the heart and soul of a Victory High-Ball cruiser with its thunderous 106ci (1731cc) Freedom motor and slick 6 speed overdrive transmission.
The High-Ball was adapted to meet Phil’s wishes by leading trike builders Rewaco, in Germany, with the addition of a modified CT1700v custom rear-end, with flowing sculpted bodywork and high level exhausts, rolling on chrome 17” laced wheels.
The finish is taken care of thanks to the mind-blowingly fine air-brush art of Terje Aspmo depicting Phil, Lemmy and Mikkey Dee live on stage. Phil will ride in comfort thanks to a hand-stitched saddle, by Marius Mellebye leather craft, featuring the legendary Motörhead Snaggletooth depicted in antique brown leather.
To see the final result, which includes a few more surprise features for Phil, don’t miss the official handover:

Victory Recalls Some 2015 Models For Transmission Issue
Polaris is recalling some 2015 model year Victory motorcycles because of a problem that can cause the transmission to shift gears or drop into neutral.
The motorcycles recalled include the 2015 Cross Country, Cross Country 8-Ball, Cross Country Tour, Gunner, Hammer 8-Ball, High Ball, Magnum, Vegas 8-Ball and Vision Tour, though only 122 units manufactured between Aug. 11 and Sept. 2 are afflicted with the problem.
Victory is currently contacting their owners to alert them of the issue. Dealers will inspect and correctly install the springs on motorcycles in their inventory. Victory has put a stop sale on the affected vehicles.
The NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) states that the transmission shift drum detent roller springs on the affected motorcycles may not have been installed correctly. The detent arm return springs may cause the transmission to unexpectedly change or drop out of gear, potentially causing a rider to lose control and increasing the risk of a crash.

Heading up the pack is the all new Gunner, featuring ABS as standard, an urban Cruiser that’s born to be customised. The Victory Magnum takes extreme Bagger style to the street with a 21” front wheel and premium audio package; and the world-beating Cross Country is now available with our radical Factory Custom Paint.

We’ve delivered the striking throwback styling riders want, with the ride and handling that comes standard on a Victory cruiser. With a 106ci engine on a full-size steel frame chassis, a new confidence-inspiring ABS package as standard equipment, mid-mount foot controls and a low (635mm) seat height, this is a bike for serious riders looking to step up to heavyweight motorcycles. Born to be customised, its features include drag-style bars, classic round headlight and all-new lightweight 24-spoke cast aluminum wheels.
